in the management of crises. remember iraq. remember libya. i believe so far we can be quite proud that even though there are differences here and they're both within and between we have managed to keep things together. i believe we would be operating -- offering of victory on a silver platter if he allowed us either within the eu or in the trans-atlantic community to be divided about the response. i mean that only half seriously then do we should say thank you, mr. president, the reminding is that there is a need to have a vibrant and active nato. some people in europe are beginning to think that maybe after afghanistan we don't need this organization that much anymore. thank you, mr. president, for reminding us that it is a good idea for europe to look at how to diversify our energy sources such. thank you, mr. president, for also reminding us that it is totally essential as an objective for the european union to speak with one voice, not only when things are called bud particularly at times of crises. i believe you have given us enough. i was hoping we would not need this. it gave us up pretty g

fire on anti-coup protesters. >>> in eastern libya, rebels have tried to storm the headquarters in benghazi after five people were killed. >>> time to look around the world at what the weather is like where you were, beginning in africa, i think everton? >> yeah, that's right. it's looking pretty good in africa. north africa you can see very little significant cloud out there. just fair-weather cloud. so northeastern parts of algeria you might see one or two showers as you go into the weekend. but that aside, it looks warm, dry, and sunny. heating up in cairo, could touch 40 celsius here. hot and dry pretty much sums it up elsewhere. we have our seasonal rains rumbling away here, running across central africa. we have seen very heavy rain in nigeria. around 55 millimeters. 92 millimeters of rain here in the space of 24 hours as well. those heavy showers will continue across west africa, through ghana, pushing across into southern nigeria. little change as we go through the weekend. out further south it is the dry seen for southern africa. temperatures in johannesberg are 22 step

in libya i came to see the journalists are just not reporting the news, they are truth seekers. imagine for a moment what would happen if we stopped working with courage. if we abandoned our integrity and gave up independence and freedom, it would leave the world a far more ignorant place with dictators free to take advantage and flurish. i learned my profession with the japanese and the highest expression of gratitude is bow so i want to bow for free press and end to our detention. >> let's bring in the international federation of journalist and a former spokesman for the international criminal court and is live from brussels tell us why world press day or press freedom day is so important. >> it's very important because as you just heard we are far from achieving that kind of idea in the real world. we have many colleagues who are behind jail like in egypt but also elsewhere like in turkey and other places. and so this is an occasion for us to rally around our profession and to call again on the government to respect the right of journalists to go about their business in total indepen

, instability, and a new government, successes and failures of u.s. intervention in libya. the oversight committee's mission statement is that we exist to secure two fundamental principles. first, americans have a right to know that the money washington takes from them is well spent, and, second, americans deserve an efficient, effective government that works for them. our solemn responsibility is to hold government accountable to taxpayers. it is our job to work in partnership with citizen watchdogs to deliver the facts to the american people and bring reform to the federal bureaucracy. this is our mission. today the oversight committee convenes a fourth hearing related to the security situation in libya before, during, and after the september 11 terrorist attack which claimed the lives of four americans. the committee has previously brought forward important witnesses who offered new and enlightening testimony on security failures that forced the administration to walk back false claims about the nature of the terrorist attack. testimony of previous witnesses identified key questions i

, as we just confirmed, for the effort to get back libya on its feet, one of the things that has been encountered in the investigation of the state department conduct in libya is the overwhelming normalization, whether it be the attempt to reduce security personnel at diplomatic facilities or so-called normal levels or attempt to view the government of libya as normal host nation partners capable of providing protection like my colleague from texas just talked about. did you encounter this normalization philosophy during operation odyssey guard? >> yes, sir, i did. >> could you elaborate a little bit on that? >> yes. or instance, there was a desire to create a new normal within , which wasnment basically redefining of what i would consider sub-optimal. >> would you consider it hostile? >> yes, sir. ahead, continue. >> the hostile environment we were dealing with, our interaction certainly was not with our interagency counterparts, but the low profile by the american government and the u.s. military in that environment at the time, we were not deploying our forces. there was no marine

outcomes. >> we had a guest here who complained that when we saw similar images in libya and ukraine, members of the senate took to the floor and demanded action, but when it was south sudan, silence. your reaction. >> well, i can see where that argument comes from. i think a lot of people are very frustrated, policy makers around the globe, as to how to get to these two leaders, the president and former president, and how to change their calculations. i don't think some sort of international intervention is on the table here, but there really is a good deal of attention that's going to this. it's not so much why don't people care, it's how can we change their behavior and so far, we're coming up empty. >> how will john kerry's presence at the peace talks be received given the recent threat of u.s. sanctions? >> i think the symbolism of his direct involvement is going to be a good thing, and i suspect there may be conversations about those sanctions and how they can be most impactful. a lot depends on the region, on neighboring countries. it's good to hear secretary kerry is meeting
